Coaching Strategy

We are running with 2 coaching squads in 2022/23.

The Performance Squad is for older more experienced boys with lower handicaps.

The Development Squad is for younger boys who are developing their games towards single figure handicaps.

The Area Coach for both groups is Colin Fisher who is based at Great Western Golf in Clydebank.

The framework for the sessions will consist of the following:

    Self-assessment
    Measure data
    Goal setting
    Plan
    Action
    Self-assess and review

Much of the work in the early stages for the ‘top-up’ sessions for the Development Players will be around building sound fundamentals, improving concepts and gaining an understanding of what factors control a ball flight, so they can slowly begin to self-organise and adjust based on ball flight observations. Thereafter, into the new year of coaching starting, building skills, particularly wedges, greenside shots and putting, then starting to build key playing skills with strategy and decision-making.

With the Performance players, much of the work will be wedge play, short game and putting, then onto performance support skills. Routines, Strategy, Mental Game, Emotional Control, Tournament Preparation, Practice habits etc.

TECHNOLOGY & COMMUNICATION
Throughout, we will use the CoachNow app to communicate with players and parents and this is also where we can log video footage, Trackman and SAM Puttlab data where applicable, homework tasks and reflective notes from practice and competitive rounds.

CoachNow is a brilliant resource and allows the players and their parents on the go access to all their info at their fingertips. The only people who have access to the players ‘Training Space’ on CoachNow are the player themselves, their parent/s/guardian and the coach.
